When folks think about summertime in Seattle, they tend not to think about extreme heat or drought, but the summer of 2015 has so far manifested some of the hottest days on record. At home, it can be easy to take comfort in air condition or the cooling breeze of a fan, but to a homeless person, extreme heat is at best an added challenge to an already very uncomfortable and difficult living situation.
In every neighborhood of Seattle there is some percentage of the homeless population trying to make ends meet. Please think about those less fortunate and be mindful of the homeless community around you. Take a moment to consider what you can do to make a homeless person's situation a little less difficult in the hot weather. Some ideas? Find your local food bank and donate non-perishable food, bottled water, or clothing, or make a small monetary donation. Volunteer your time, or plan to come to St. Cloud's to participate in the next Homeless Cooking Project!
NEXT HOMELESS COOKING PROJECT ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 15TH!
John and Pablo are excited to receive donations of some fantastic canned tuna over the next two months from Ocean Naturals in Bellevue, WA. At the next Homeless Cooking Project they are hoping to create some outstanding tuna salads and tuna pasta dishes with the help of their beloved volunteers. Bring ideas and accompaniments - and don't forget your cutting boards and aprons, too!
Last but not least, please enjoy the selection of photos below from the last few Homeless Cooking Projects in April, May, and June 2015!
